Support for Service Pack 2 for Windows Vista and for Windows Server 2008 is not included in Microsoft Deployment Toolkit 2008 Update 1

This article has been archived. It is offered "as is" and will no longer be updated.
Symptoms
After you import Windows Vista Service Pack 2 (SP2) or Windows Server 2008 Service Pack 2 into Microsoft Deployment Toolkit 2008 Update 1, you notice a lack of support for Service Pack 2 in the Microsoft Deployment Toolkit. This includes a lack of support for Service Pack 2 in the Supported Platforms list and the lack of language packs during Lite Touch deployment.
Cause
Microsoft Deployment Toolkit 2008 Update 1 was released before the Service Pack 2 release. Therefore, Deployment Toolkit 2008 Update 1 does not include support for Windows Vista SP2 and for Windows Server 2008 SP2.
Workaround
To work around this problem, administrators can manually add Service Pack 2 support to the Microsoft Deployment Toolkit by updating the ZTISupportedPlatforms.xml and DeployWiz_Initialization.vbs files.

Supported platforms fix

To add support for Windows Vista SP2 and for Windows Server 2008 SP2 in the Supported Platforms list, add the following entries to the ZTISupportedPlatforms.xml file:
<SupportedPlatform name="x86 Windows Vista Service Pack 2">       <Expression><![CDATA[SELECT * FROM Win32_OperatingSystem WHERE Version like '6.0%' AND OSType=18 AND ServicePackMajorVersion = 2 AND ProductType=1]]></Expression>       <Expression><![CDATA[SELECT * FROM Win32_OperatingSystem WHERE OSArchitecture like '32%']]></Expression></SupportedPlatform><SupportedPlatform name="x64 Windows Vista Service Pack 2">       <Expression><![CDATA[SELECT * FROM Win32_OperatingSystem WHERE Version like '6.0%' AND OSType=18 AND ServicePackMajorVersion = 2 AND ProductType=1]]></Expression>       <Expression><![CDATA[SELECT * FROM Win32_OperatingSystem WHERE OSArchitecture like '64%']]></Expression>	</SupportedPlatform><SupportedPlatform name="x86 Windows Server 2008 Service Pack 2">       <Expression><![CDATA[SELECT * FROM Win32_OperatingSystem WHERE Version like '6.0%' AND OSType=18 AND ServicePackMajorVersion = 2 AND ProductType>1]]></Expression>       <Expression><![CDATA[SELECT * FROM Win32_OperatingSystem WHERE OSArchitecture like '32%']]></Expression></SupportedPlatform><SupportedPlatform name="x64 Windows Server 2008 Service Pack 2">       <Expression><![CDATA[SELECT * FROM Win32_OperatingSystem WHERE Version like '6.0%' AND OSType=18 AND ServicePackMajorVersion = 2 AND ProductType>1]]></Expression>       <Expression><![CDATA[SELECT * FROM Win32_OperatingSystem WHERE OSArchitecture like '64%']]></Expression></SupportedPlatform>
Notice that the ZTISupportedPlatforms.xml file may exist in multiple locations. For example, if you installed Microsoft Deployment Toolkit 2008 Update 1 in the C:\program Files\Microsoft Deployment Toolkit directory, and you created a Lab deployment share in the C:\distribution directory, you might find that the file is also located in the following directories:
C:\Distribution\Scripts\ZTISupportedPlatforms.xml
C:\Program Files\Microsoft Deployment Toolkit\Scripts\ZTISupportedPlatforms.xml
C:\Program Files\Microsoft Deployment Toolkit\Templates\Distribution\Scripts\ZTISupportedPlatforms.xml

Language pack handling

To add support for Windows Vista SP2 and Windows Server 2008 SP2 language packs, manually edit the DeployWiz_Initialization.vbs file, and then replace the existing ConstructLPQuery() function with the following text:
Function ConstructLPQuery ( isLangPack )       Dim Keyword       Dim isServer       Dim ImgBuild       Dim SPVersion       Dim LPQuery       Dim LPVersion       Dim i       isServer  = inStr(1,oEnvironment.Item("ImageFlags"),"SERVER",vbTextCompare) <> 0       ImgBuild  = oEnvironment.Item("ImageBuild")       If not isLangPack then              LPQuery = "Type != 'LanguagePack' and (ProductVersion = '" & ImgBuild & "' or ProductVersion = '') "       ElseIf isServer and left(ImgBuild,4) = "6.0." then              ' All Windows Vista Language Packs use Product Version 6.0.6001.18000.              LPQuery = "Type = 'LanguagePack' and Name = 'Microsoft-Windows-Server-LanguagePack-Package' and  ProductVersion = '6.0.6001.18000' "       ElseIf left(ImgBuild,4) = "6.0." then              ' All Windows Server 2008 Language Packs use Product Version 6.0.6000.16386.              LPQuery = "Type = 'LanguagePack' and Name = 'Microsoft-Windows-Client-LanguagePack-Package' and  ProductVersion = '6.0.6000.16386' "       ElseIf isServer then              LPQuery = "Type = 'LanguagePack' and Name = 'Microsoft-Windows-Server-LanguagePack-Package' and  ProductVersion = '" & ImgBuild & "' "       Else              LPQuery = "Type = 'LanguagePack' and Name = 'Microsoft-Windows-Client-LanguagePack-Package' and  ProductVersion = '" & ImgBuild & "' "       End if       If left(ImgBuild,4) = "6.0." then              LPVersion = Mid(ImgBuild,8,1)              If IsNumeric(LPVersion) and LPVersion > 0 then                     ' Exclude all Language Packs that are less than the Current OS.                     LPQuery = LPQuery & " and Keyword != 'Language Pack'"                     For i = 2 to LPVersion                           LPQuery = LPQuery & " and Keyword != 'SP" & (LPVersion - 1) & " Language Pack'"                     Next              End if       ElseIf IsServer then              ' Windows Server 2008 R2 Beta 1 uses SP1.              LPQuery = LPQuery & " and (Keyword = 'Language Pack' or Keyword = 'SP1 Language Pack' )"       Else              ' Windows 7 defined as RTM.              LPQuery = LPQuery & " and (Keyword = 'Language Pack')"       End if       If UCase(oEnvironment.Item("ImageProcessor")) = "X64" then              LPQuery = "//packages/package[ProcessorArchitecture = 'amd64' and " & LPQuery & "]"       Else              LPQuery = "//packages/package[ProcessorArchitecture = 'x86' and " & LPQuery & "]"       End if       oLogging.CreateEntry vbTab & "QUERY: " & LPQuery, LogTypeInfo       ConstructLPQuery = LPQueryEnd function 
Notice that the DeployWiz_Initialization.vbs file may exist in multiple locations. For example, if you installed Microsoft Deployment Toolkit 2008 Update 1 in the C:\program Files\Microsoft Deployment Toolkit directory, and you created a Lab deployment share in the C:\distribution directory, you might find that the file is also located in the following directories:
C:\Distribution\Scripts\DeployWiz_Initialization.vbs
C:\Program Files\Microsoft Deployment Toolkit\Templates\Distribution\Scripts\DeployWiz_Initialization.vbs
Status
Microsoft has confirmed that Microsoft Deployment Toolkit 2008 Update 1 does not provide support for Windows Vista SP2 and for Windows Server 2008 SP2. The methods that are described in the "Workaround" section add support for Windows Vista SP2 and for Windows Server 2008 SP2 to Microsoft Deployment Toolkit 2008 Update 1.
